Man, this is the coolest thing ever! Like Mythbusters meets brewing.

I don't think its fair to compare solar breweries to this. They are using solar panels to run their boilers. Solarhomebrewer's boiler IS the sun. More geek/mad scientist than trying to be green.

Solarhomebrewer asked me to post this pic of his mash tun.

Notice the scorch marks from where the linear lens was focused - An 1/2" Schmedling Easy Masher Screen slid on rubber grommets on the dip tube of a 10 Gallon Corney Tank painted Flat Matt Black, Melanoidins galore. Runnings are pushed through with C02 to brew kettle. This set up can be used without the Solar Oven.

Joe is definitely the first brewer I've ever seen make a rock melt. No ants were harmed in the making of any of this beer

Neat-o. I'll have to see if my friend will let me take his TV apart for the lens... He's been wanting a new LCD for a while now.
